UPDATE: I wrote an updated version of this post, with lots more data here.
Earlier today Janet Meiners posted an awesome post at MarketingPilgrim.com about the top ten most visited real estate web sites. One of the things that surprised me the most was that there was only one national franchise site in the list. I think that this is interesting because it shows something that I have been feeling for awhile. Most of the national real estate franchises are dropping the ball against more savey web 2.0 business that are attracting all the traffic.
Despite that it might be a good idea to get a grasp on who in the group of national franchises are doing better than the others. Therefore I have done a bit of research and put together what I think is a good assessment of the top 5 national franchise real estate web sites. To conduct my analysis, I used four different traffic firms to make averages for each. The list and results for all are below:
